This is a lovely traditional south-facing house, built with stone and oak, ideal holiday home or residence. It is sited on the edge of a small village (population approx. 600).

The front door opens into a large kitchen/dining room with an original fireplace housing a Godin wood burning stove.
 
The kitchen has some fitted units, a dual fuel cooker with a gas hob (bottled) and an electric oven and easily accommodates a six place kitchen / dining table. Off the kitchen there is a large utility room with the hot water tank, storage area, washing machine and fridge.
From the kitchen the hallway goes to a downstairs shower room with WC and another long room which is potential living space, benefiting from exposed wooden beams and stone walls. This could be either a sitting room, study or a third bedroom.

Open wooden stairs from the hallway open into the large sitting room with lovely original floor tiles, exposed beams and Godin wood burning stove set in original stone fireplace. Originally you would have entered the house up the original steps outside and through the wooden door directly into this room, which are all still used.

There are two double bedrooms including the feature bedroom with exposed beams and original quarry stone floor tiles. There is a bathroom with bath and WC on this floor adjacent to a bedroom and could be made into an en-suite.

Electric radiators throughout. Mains drainage. Fully insulated large loft area that could be suitable for conversion.

Outside at the foot of the external steps there is room to park and a stone outbuilding used for storage.
Opposite the house is a garage and garden, with grass and some shrubs. A stream runs along the bottom of the garden.

Local taxes are Tax de Habitation and Taxe Foncaire which total approximately e60 per month. Additional charges cover sewerage (around e190pa) and water is metered.

NOTE: In line with usual French practice, the purchaser is responsible for all fees, etc which usually equate to around 10% of the purchase price.

All or most furnishings could be included subject to separate negotiation.

Further pictures can be e-mailed to prospective purchasers or look at http://www.frenchestateagents.com/french-property-for-sale/view/31121JN37/house-for-sale-in-betz-le-chateau-indre-et-loire-centre-france  Couldn't post more here as apparently they do not have sufficient pixilation to post on e-bay! Viewing can be arranged at any time - French neighbour has keys.

The village boasts a private chateau, beautiful church, boulangerie, epicurie, hairdressers and butcher, along with all the necessary local amenities.
Within walking distance of the house is a park with small village lake and childrens' playground.
The nearest large town is Ligueil (11km). Loches is 18km, Tours 55km, Val de Loire Airport 59km, Poitiers 78km, Poitiers-Biard Airport 81km, Futuroscope 72km.
This area is just on the edge of the World Heritage site of the Loire Valley, known as the garden of France, and 30 mins from the Brenne National Park which is a birdwatchers paradise with fishing and canoeing opportunities. Bellebouche Lake here has a beach!

Within about one hour drive are numerous Loire Chateaux including Amboise, Villandry, Cande and Azay. There are extensive vineyards offering tours and tastings. There are many museums and houses of authors including Descartes. Within a similar driving distance is a large Zoo with pandas, Fantasy Forest and the Val de Loire Aquarium. There are extensive walking and safe cycling routes throughout the region. A few minutes south is an area of historical interest where Chalcolithic flints were mined. The area was famous from the Middle Paleolithic age until the decline in importance of flint in favour of bronze.
